Weekly Highlights is a new feature here at A Daydreamer’s Thoughts and will be a post highlighting things that happened on and off the blog. It is inspired by The Story Sirens In My Mailbox, Books, Biscuit and Tea’s Showcase Sunday, Kimba Caffeinated’s Sunday Post, and the British Letterbox Love.
In the feature I won’t mention everything I received, nor every post I wrote during the week but will simply feature a selection of things I wish to spotlight a second time around.
A pretty steady week post-wise, if I do say so myself! I definitely think not posting every day has its perks!
I also did something a little differently this week and posted a list of books that all have a similar trend, can you work out what the trend is? Check it out here.

Andye has posted a very interesting discussion post this week about author responsibility. Have a look at what she says in this post.
It’s been a pretty spectacular week, book wise! I’m SO EXCITED and so HAPPY about so many of the books I got!
Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes; I’ve had my eye on this since BEA and I’m glad to finally have a copy! Cannot wait to get to reading it. Thank you so much to Harper360 for this book.
Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern; I actually already owned this book but when I went to the premiere of the film, I completely forgot to take it with me! Thus I bought it again and got it signed by the author, director, and some of the actors and actresses! Needless to say, this is now a very special book!
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Morriarty; Ever since I finished Little Lies, I’ve been dying to read this book so when I saw it was on offer, how could I possibly resist? Really looking forward to reading this one, eventually.
Penelope by Rachel Harrington; I’ve been meaning to read this book for AGES. One of my aussie blogger friends told me it was amazing and I’ve since had it on my radar. Finally saw it in paperback and on offer so I HAD to buy it!
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn; I saw the film of this last week and I loved it! It was a little disturbing and quite entertaining all at the same time. Regardless, I cannot wait to read the book so I was very happy that my mum has lent me her copy!
Opal Plumstead by Jacqueline Wilson; I LOVE Jacqueline Wilson. I grew up reading her books and so when I heard about this one, I knew I wanted to read it. Add in a super interesting summary and I couldn’t wait. I’ll be reviewing this for Big Book Little Book. Many thanks to Penguin Random House for the copy!
I read a few books at a time so I have decided that I want to showcase them a little on the blog and so from now on I thought I would tell you all what I’m currently reading (on Saturday/Sunday!)
This week I am currently reading;
And there you have it, my Weekly Highlights!
